However, the problem with this technology is that the image and video resolutions were not so clear and the storage process was not so convenient. That is why homeowners have switched to IP-based home based security cameras.

They are commonly connected together as network and because they use unique IP address, se cameras can be accessed anywhere around the world via an internet-enabled PC. With IP cameras, you have the ability to be able to view the images anywhere in the world.

IP based cameras are digital and use a hard disk that stores information so there is no chance of degradation of image quality so the image they produce is a lot clearer than analogue cameras.
